Janice Cordeiro's Profile
I think the first time anyone picks up a barbed needle and pokes at the wool they are hooked. And the adventure begins. It almost seems magical to take a flat piece of wool and needle it into the shape you want. I especially like to create baby animals. Something about the innocence in their expression. As a young girl I loved to look at the clouds and find animals lurking about. And the artist was born. I still use that process, but now I use fiber. I can take a handful of of a beautiful fiber and just start needling it. Before long, I see very well what it wants to be. Some of my finest pieces come from that process.
I worked as a graphic artist in the printing industry for 13 years. My art education came by way of the University of West Virginia. I am also a published artist.
The question most often asked is what is needle…
